Keanu Reeves Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Keanu Charles Reeves, commonly known as Keanu Reeves, is a famous American voice actor, actor, as well as a director. Throughout his acting career, Reeves had portrayed a variety of memorable character, yet he is perhaps most notable for playing the character of Neo in The Wachowski Brothers’ action film called “The Matrix”, which is considered to be among the greatest science fiction films of all time. In addition to its remarkable storyline, as well as performances from Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss and Hugo Weaving, “The Matrix” popularized the “bullet time” effect, which since then has become the distinguishing feature of the film. Aside from grossing $460 million at the box office, the movie inspired the release of two more films, namely “The Matrix Reloaded”, which earned $742 million at the box office, and the third installment in the series entitled “The Matrix Revolutions”. An award-winning trilogy, “The Matrix” brought Reeves many further acting opportunities, from which he has managed to earn a living. Aside from “The Matrix” trilogy, Keanu Reeves’ other notable works include “Speed” with Sandra Bullock, Bernardo Bertolucci’s “Little Buddha”, “The Day the Earth Stood Still”, and more recently “John Wick”, which received a lot of critical praise.

Keanu Reeves Net Worth $350 Million

A well-known actor, how rich is Keanu Reeves? According to sources, Keanu Reeves’ net worth is estimated to be $350 million, most of which he has accumulated due to his acting career. Among Reeves’ most valuable assets are his “Harley Davidson” bike, which cost him $28,000, and a “West Coast Chopper” bike, the worth of which is $50,000.

Keanu Reeves was born in 1964, in Lebanon, but travelled a lot when he was a child. He lived in Hawaii, Sydney, and New York, before he finally settled down in Toronto with his grandparents. Reeves initially studied at the Etobicoke School of the Arts, and then enrolled in the Avondale Secondary Alternative School, which helped him with his education as well as his acting ventures. Reeves’ acting career began when he was nine years old, as he made his first appearance in the “Damn Yankees” theatre production. Reeves appeared in several other theatre productions, until in 1986 he landed a role in Peter Markle’s drama film entitled “Youngblood” with Rob Lowe and Patrick Swayze. Keanu Reeves’ big breakthrough came in 1991, when he starred opposite Patrick Swayze and Gary Busey in an action film called “Point Break”, which enjoyed box office success as well as a cult following. For his portrayal of FBI Agent Johnny Utah, Reeves received an MTV award for “Most Desirable Male”. Since then he has starred in “Speed”, “A Walk in the Clouds”, “The Devil’s Advocate” with Charlize Theron and Al Pacino, and the famous “Matrix” trilogy. Currently, Keanu Reeves is filming in “Knock, Knock”, “The Whole Truth” with Gabriel Basso and Jim Belushi, and “Daughter of God”, all of which are scheduled to be released in 2015.

A well-known actor, as well as a voice actor and director, Keanu Reeves has an estimated net worth of $350 million.

#Quote
1[on the possibility of Bill and Ted 3] It's a long story. There's lots of subterfuge and conspiracy theories. There's a whole thing... I might have to do one of those independent press, conspiracy, other-name kind of [statements] explaining why it hasn't happened yet, because it's pretty dark out there... There is [a script]. There's all sorts of stuff and it just can't - it's just - there's darkness out there that's keeping it from happening... It's that part of the story where it's looking grim. It's the dark period of the idea!
2[on directing himself as a villain in Man of Tai Chi (2013) The first day was not fun, because one is so objective and one is so subjective. As an actor, you only have your responsibility to your role within the whole, and the director has a responsibility to the whole and you in it. So it's a different mindset. And you're literally, physically, in two different spaces.
3[on his beliefs] Sure I believe in God and the Devil but they don't have to have pitchforks and a long white beard.
4[1992] It's only very recently that I've been approached with, 'Would you like to do this?' Mostly, I'm still auditioning, which there's something to be said for. Up to now, my only real choices have been: 'Hmmmm, an audition, go or not go? Go!' I auditioned seven times for _Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1900)_ and all the 'finalists' had to read with everyone else-me, Pauly Shore, Josh Richman, Alex Winter and others. I met with Francis Ford Coppola three times before he asked me if I wanted to play the part in Dracula (1992).
5[on auditioning for Oliver Stone's The Doors (1991)] I auditioned a few times, but I don't think I was ever seriously in the running. I was terrified. I just read some of Jim Morrison's poetry and listened to some of his music and did what I could.
6[1995, on My Own Private Idaho (1991)' You know what's great? Right after I finished Dracula (1992), I went to Paris to visit a couple of friends, shipped over one of my Norton's, my '72 750 with California plates, and just hung out for two-and-a-half weeks. My Own Private Idaho (1991) had just opened at a theater right near my friend's house where I was staying. I got stopped by a couple of American students who'd seen it and they bought me a beer. Which is what you should do in Paris: sit in cafés, talk, hang out. I had miraculous weather, so it didn't rain on my parade. Then, I went to New York to visit friends, sat down, hung out, and the same sort of thing happened there. So, do I want more movies that lead to experiences like that? Yes, please.
7[1995] L.A. has been my place of abode for seven years and I have a little place in New York City. I don't even have a house house, but I have been living in the same place in Los Angeles for a couple of years and it's just now becoming a home. I like to be free and unfettered. I like the option of being able to do anything and go anywhere, anytime. I like to have my house open. A lot of my friends have keys to my houses and I like to have everything, you know, 'What's mine is yours,' and to drink wine, talk and hang out.
8[1995, on his idea of happiness] Lying in bed with my lover, riding my bike, sports, happy times with my friends, conversation, learning, the earth, dirt, a beautiful repast with friends, family with wine and glorious food and happy tidings and energy and zest and lust for life. I like being in the desert, in nature, being in extraordinary spaces in nature, high in a tree or in the dirt, hanging out with my family, my sisters.
9[on Patrick Swayze] He was a beautiful person, an artist! Patrick, he just wanted to experience life and, for his work, he wanted to take the opportunity of the film and it gave him that sense. There was some sky diving sequences in this film we did together and as filming was going on it came to be that Patrick was jumping out of airplanes all the time. I think he had over 30 jumps during the course of filming and so the production served him with a cease and desist which he listened to until they got to Hawaii. He jumps out of planes and did the flips and falling to the ground and he did it with an open heart. I'll always remember his buddy for lighting up a room with his presence. I can say what I know that he lived life to the fullest.
10[on River Phoenix and My Own Private Idaho (1991)] We were doing I Love You to Death (1990), and we got the Idaho script. We were driving in a car on Santa Monica Boulevard, probably on the way to a club, and were talking really fast about the whole idea. We were excited. It could have been like a bad dream, a dream that never follows through because no one commits, but we just forced ourselves into it. We said, "Okay, I'll do it if you do it. I won't do it if you don't." We shook hands. That was it.
11[on River Phoenix] River was a remarkable artist and a rare human being. I miss him every day.
12[on River Phoenix] You can't blame Hollywood for what happened to River. Kids are doing drugs everywhere in the world. He had his own very personal problems I will never discuss with the press. They're just way too personal. River had a self-destructive side to his personality. He was angry and hurt that he couldn't have a private life once he became famous. He just couldn't deal with having his private life on the front page all the time.
13It's always wonderful to get to know women, with the mystery and the joy and the depth. If you can make a woman laugh, you're seeing the most beautiful thing on God's Earth.
14Here comes 40. I'm feeling my age and I've ordered the Ferrari. I'm going to get the whole mid-life crisis package.
15I'm Mickey Mouse. They don't know who's inside the suit.
16[when asked if he had any fears] I used to have nightmares that they would put "He played Ted" on my tombstone.
17[on drugs] I've had wonderful experiences. I mean really wonderful. In teaching. Personal epiphanies. About life. About a different perspective -- help with different perspectives that you have. You know what I mean? Relationships to nature. Relationships with the self. With other people. With events.
18[on being a star] It can still be very surreal. It's easy to become very self-critical when you're an actor. Then you get critiqued be the critics. Whether you agree with them or not, people are passing judgment on you.
19I'm sorry my existence is not very noble or sublime.
20I'm a meathead, man. You've got smart people, and you've got dumb people. I just happen to be dumb.
21[when told he'd have to "bite the bullet"] Yes, but I don't have to eat the whole rifle.
22When I don't feel free and can't do what I want I just react. I go against it.
23My name can't be THAT tough to pronounce!
24What would happen if you melted? You know, you never really hear this talked about much, but spontaneous combustion? It exists!...[people] burn from within...sometimes they'll be in a wooden chair and the chair won't burn, but there'll be nothing left of the person. Except sometimes his teeth. Or the heart. No one speaks about this, but its for real.
